  epiphany
By an epiphany he meant a sudden spiritual manifestation, whether in the vulgarity of speech or of gesture or in a memorable phase of the mind itself.
Later in the century Dante Gabriel Rossetti experienced epiphanies which were sudden and unexpected, and on the borderline of the secular and religious.
Often the materials for epiphanies are, on the face of it, very slight, and sometimes coming together, as Wordsworth puts it, 'by chance collisions and quaint accidents' (The Prelude, 1.617).

 Joyce - Music: Gerard Victory's "Six Epiphanies"
The curiously titled Six Epiphanies of the Author is explained by the subtitle "A Symphonic Study in Memory of James Joyce." The orchestral work was composed in 1981 for Joyce's centenary year in 1982.
The first epiphany is an ironic Habanera; the second is a march magnificently orchestrated as one has come to expect from Victory; the third oration and scherzo moves from moving whispers to a riotous bacchanale in which fragments of a music-hall song and parodies of the liturgy are cleverly woven.
This is followed by the final epiphany, a March Macabre which echoes the earlier Habanera where the underworld, ribald laughter and menace are all portrayed with gripping realism.

 Epiphanies, Inc.
The term is used in either a philosophical or literal sense to signify that the claimant has “found the last piece of the puzzle and now sees the whole picture,” or has new information or experience, often insignificant by itself, that illuminates a deeper or numinous foundational frame of reference.
Joyce also used epiphany as a literary device within each short story of his collection Dubliners (1916) as his protagonists came to sudden recognitions that changed their view of themselves or their social condition and often sparking a reversal or change of heart.
Among hackers in the proper sense of the word, the word “zen” is used as a verb in the same sense as epiphany, to mean acquiring a sudden comprehension.

 Joyce - Papers: Joyce's Dubliners as Epiphanies
Joyce understood that his epiphanies, in order to become what they were supposed to be (gestalt revelations), had to give up their disembodied existence to become parts of an organic narrative, where all the elements have a precise function.
An epiphany therefore is a functioning of all the senses in unison that produces a change or metamorphosis, because it leads from unawareness to the sudden awareness of one's own predicament.
The epiphany is complete when the story of the priest is told and the boy, having smelled the flowers and seen the coffin and touched the ground kneeling in front of the corpse and tasted the wine, listens deliberately for any sound from the priest.

 The New Arcadia Review :: Articles :: Epiphanies in Joyce
Epiphany signals the traversal of the finite by the infinite, of the particular by the universal, of the mundane by the mystical, of time by eternity.
Epiphanies seem to have something to do with a certain anagnoresis which coincides with a creative repetition or retrieval of some ‘inexperienced experience’ – a sort of ana-mnesis which in turn calls for a particular ana-aesthesis of literary epiphany.
The epiphany of essence is also described by Proust as a ‘perpetual recreation of the primordial elements of nature’ (vol 1, 906), implying that the essence retrieves the birth of time itself at the beginning of time.

 Style: The Aestheticist Epiphanies of J. D. Salinger: Bright-Hued Circles, Spheres, and Patches; "Elemental" Joy and ...
In Salinger, epiphanies usually involve a combination of two or more elements, but one of these sometimes will be suggested only vaguely by a color-link (as the mention of a gold medallion may suggest the fiery sun).
In his characters' epiphanies, Salinger also likes to use a varied range of colors, but they are all simple and pure, and (except for the first one in my list) all are bright: navy blue, green, gold, white, red.
Finally, in Salinger, the epiphany usually generates within the observer, and vicariously in the reader, a vivid mixture of pleasure and pain, of joy and grief.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Epiphany
It is certain that the Epiphany festival in the East very early admitted a more or less marked commemoration of the Nativity, or at least of the Angeli ad Pastores, the most striking "manifestation" of Christ's glory on that occasion.
Moreover, the first actual reference to the ecclesiastical feast of the Epiphany (Ammianus Marcellinus, XXI, ii), in 361, appears to be doubled in Zonaras (XIII, xi) by a reference to the same festival as that of Christ's Nativity.
That the Epiphany was of later introduction in the West than the Christmas festival of 25 December, has been made clear in the article CHRISTMAS.

 Epiphanies, perfect moments, and centers to time   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In the twentieth century, Eliot's Four Quartets best exemplify religious epiphanies, while Joyce, who created the term by borrowing it from religious usage, made it the center of his fiction.
According to Stephen Hero, "By an epiphany" Joyce's protagonist meant "a sudden spiritual manifestation, whether in the vulgarity of speech or of gesture or in memorable phrase of the mind itself.
He believed that it was for the man of letters to record those epiphanies with extreme care, seeing that they themselves are the most delicate and evanescent of moments" (p.21).

 Sharing Epiphanies by Ann Jauregui: Reviews
Epiphanies is a powerful and delightful account of the mind's ability to gain spontaneous insight and to reorganize information in therapeutically successful ways.
Epiphanies, as Dr. Ann Jaurequi shows, reveal that the world at heart is kinder and more benevolent than we have recently supposed.
We are taken to the far side of science, which – according to Jauregui – bears a remarkable resemblance to what she refers to as “epiphanies,” moments when the very ineffable finds words for itself – the miracle of the new.

 Lyric epiphanies and speakers
(In religious usage, "epiphany" suggests revelation.) Again, most of us are familiar with this convention because we have experienced versions of it elsewhere (for example, in some popular songs and short stories).
For example, in one common sequence, the speaker has an experience, responds to it with feelings, and comes to understand the meaning of the events or objects he or she describes.
Meanings may not immediately be apparent; epiphanies, though they seem to be "sudden" revelations, may take time to be discovered.

 Read This: The Moment Of Proof: Mathematical Epiphanies
Although there is a chance you are reading it because you are related to the author, more likely you are a mathematics teacher, a mathematics student, or a mathematician.
Today's popular mathematics books seldom mention "rubber sheet geometry", for example, and a chapter on Rubik's cube today is not nearly as interesting as it would have been fifteen years ago (is it already that long?) Thus, there is a need, and always will be a need, for new popular mathematics books.
The mathematical epiphany arrives when we learn how the quicksort works, why it works, and why it is faster than more familiar techniques, if the lists are very long.
